Summary0004437: Appearance dialog window placement is wrong in multi display setup

I have an annoying issue with Appearance Window on my multi display setup. If I right click an object in the tree and select "Appearance" from the menu the dialog window is placed at the virtual (0,0) point. But this point is actually doesn't match to my actual hardware mapping. Please check the attached picture, which shows my current display setup.

Left one is my laptop's display and aligned to the bottom side of the primary monitor. I need to use tricks to move the dialog window to the primary display every time I use it. This is pretty annoying and slows me down.

Two options can be considered for a solution.
1) Dialog windows can remember their last X,Y, width and height information.
2) Dialog windows can be opened in the center (or inside the limits) of the main window.
Steps To Reproduce1) Create a multi monitor setup which lacks top left section (refer to attached picture)
2) Open FreeCAD (0.18.4)
3) Open "Parts" workbench
4) Create a box
5) Right Click on the box in the Model window tree
6) Choose "Appearance"
7) Window should be shown on virtual 0,0 and window decoration (title bar, buttons etc) should be inaccessible.
TagsNo tags attached.

After posting this report I was able to build FreeCAD 0.19 from source and checked the same situation. Looks like it has been fixed and no need to keep this report active.
